Global Oil Platform Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An oil platform is a man-made structure used to extract natural gas and oil from beneath the earth's surface. They are typically large, cylindrical structures that are placed in the ocean over an area where there is believed to be large reserves of oil or gas.

Fixed Platforms:

Fixed platforms are used in the oil & gas industry for various operations such as drilling, well testing, and production. The global fixed platforms market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for crude oil across major economies including China, India, Japan and South Korea. Growing energy needs due to population explosion coupled with depleting onshore reserves has led companies towards offshore locations which will further boost product demand over the next seven years.

Semi-submersible Platforms:

A semi-submersible platform is a vessel, which can be used to carry out operations on the seabed. It is also known as a subsea mobile offshore drilling platform (MSOP), and consists of an above-water section that can be connected to the seabed by means of a umbilical.

The main purpose of using MSOPs is to reduce the cost and time required for oil extraction from beneath the surface of water bodies.

Application Insights:

On the basis of application, the global oil platform market has been segmented into lakes, inland seas, offshore water and others. Lakes accounted for a significant share in 2017 owing to increasing use of these platforms for exploration and production activities in freshwater bodies across China, Brazil and Mexico. In addition, growing demand for onshore facilities at a domestic level is expected to augment investments by 2019 in order to cater to rising requirements over the forecast period.

Inland seas are anticipated to witness growth at a CAGR of XX% from 2018to 2030 owingto increased development activities along with shale gas projects off Argentina which will propel product demand over the next seven years. The Asia Pacific region is estimated to account for more than 50% of total offshore water production due largelyto favorable government policies related towards energy security as well as environmental protection coupled with high population density along with existing coal-fired power plants will drive product demand over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has witnessed a significant increase in demand for oil platforms over the past few years owing to rapid economic growth, increasing population, and rising energy requirements.

The Middle East & Africa accounted for a major share of global revenue in 2017 due to growing offshore activities mainly in Nigeria, Angola, Egypt, South Africa and Saudi Arabia. In addition there has been an increase in onshore developments such as shale gas projects which have led to higher demand for oil platforms across this region as well. Rising investments from foreign players are anticipated to boost regional growth further.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for oil and gas due to population growth and industrialization in developing countries
  • Rising investment in oil and gas exploration and production
  • Proliferation of new oilfield development technologies
  • Growing focus on renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric power which are expected to reduce the demand for oil in the long run
  • Stringent environmental regulations that promote the use of more efficient offshore drilling platforms
